I am amazed that folks like this restaurant! Our dinner was way below par.
The biggest problem was that the sea bass (a special, not on the regular menu) arrived half raw. I couldn't cut through it with a knife. They did try to make it right and the chef by way of apology sent out this crazy appetizer that had a scallop encased in a big ball of fried spaghetti. Weird! The single scallop tasted fine (once I found it inside the mass of massacred pasta). When the sea bass came back, the edges were cooked, but the middle was still sort of rubbery. Inedible.
The waitress brought out a slice of tiramisu, by way of apology. It was okay, not especially wonderful, and by choice I wouldn't have ordered dessert anyway.
A quick note about the caesar salad -- not very special, just some chopped romaine with homemade croutons (the only high spot), powdered parmesan (really?) and rather ordinary dressing. For $7.50 -- and we had to ask twice for an extra plate so we could share.
When the bill came, I guess they figured that bringing out extra food (that we didn't really want) made up for ruining a $23 piece of fish. That's right -- we had to pay $23 for inedible fish.
